Dances

 

Contemporary dance

44 €, 10 classes

Wed 17-18 K 14.1.-25.3. (not 25.2.)

Instructor: Minna Nerg

Contemporary dance is a self-willed type of dance which eludes definitions, both borrowing from and transcending other dance and art forms.

On this course, we shall study movement in an effort to find our own natural ways of movement and expression. The course consists of following but also creating short dance routines, and doing dance technique exercises. Technical virtuosity however is not expected. Please come as you are and proceed with a curious mind!

Level: mid

Registration starts on 7.1.

K-pop is a modern form of popular music in South Korea, which was influenced by different genres of music around the world (Western pop, rock, jazz, Latin, hip-hop, R&B, electronic dance, folk, classical, etc.) with traditional Korean music at its roots. There are over 100 artists and bands in K-pop, such as BTS, SNSD, Bigbang, IU, EXO, Blackpink, and so much more. With many K-pop artists, choreography and their dance performance is a very important part of their music, to which fans can follow and make covers of.
